How to use Thermosphere in a sentence
The modeling work at APL goes back thirty years for the terrestrial thermosphere.
This has indicated the presence of atmospheric gravity wave signatures in the high-latitude thermosphere.
Recent observational evidence indicates a systematic reduction in gravity wave fluxes in the upper mesosphere and lower thermosphere from solar minimum to solar maximum.
Differences only become significant above about 70km, but are very large in the upper mesosphere/lower thermosphere.
The results will show how far planetary waves penetrate into the lower thermosphere under " direct " forcing.Advertisement
These studies involve measuring reaction rate coefficients at the low temperatures characteristic of the mesosphere/lower thermosphere region.
